Sole win in 16 starts for the Born To Sea gelding came in a Roscommon maiden in August 2017. Well held in four starts this term including a disappointing effort at Fairyhouse on Friday. Others look open to more improvement.
Winner of a single race from 11 starts. Not seen since finishing down the field in a 1m2f handicap at Leopardstown two years ago for previous handler Adrian Joyce. Rated 14lb superior of next best in the race.
C&D winner in a August handicap off a 8lb higher mark. Well held in a number of dour efforts since. Not getting any younger and difficult to see where improvement is coming from.
Out-ran her odds of 50/1 in a Gowran Park claimer on Flat debut last month finishing 2L off the winner Percy B Shelley. Step up in trip likely to suit and one for the shortlist.
Four-race maiden down the field on all starts to date. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Winner of four of his 53 career starts though his sole win on turf came in a Navan 1m5f handicap three years ago off a 5lb lower mark. Well held over 2m when last seen in April but drop in trip sure to suit here.
Eight-race maiden on the Flat who has shown little signs of any ability in three starts on turf. Not in the form required to play a part at the business end of proceedings in first-time cheekpieces.
Just the two wins from 50 starts on the Flat, 47 defeats coming on turf. On a 35 race losing run and makes little appeal based on what the mare has shown since the turn of the year.
One win from 21 Flat starts on turf, including finishing over 12L adrift of Swelltime at Fairyhouse on Friday. Others more appealing on the balance of recent sorties.
Hint of encouragement in a Down Royal bumper over 2m last month before finishing 35L behind the winner of a Tramore maiden hurdle earlier this month. Best watched on Flat debut unless market vibes have other ideas.
Without success in 30 Flat starts on turf and has been well beaten in five seasonal efforts this term. Makes little appeal in this heat.
